    I'm not sure what has happened but one of our hens has a sore on top of her foot. It was bleeding this morning but has stopped now. It's only one foot and so far she seems to be acting fine. What should I do for her?

    Clean it with some soap and water, put some Neosporin on it and watch to see if any of her coopmates are picking at it. If they are leaving it alone then you have nothing to worry about. It should heal in its own time.

    Good luck.
